in nevada and colorado. nevada is a pathway to 270 without ohio. i think the post-mortem on this is that -- if the republicans don't win, a look a thow they dealt with the latino vote and the language they used and the perception that is created. the latino vote is one of the pillars of the obama strategy. and a big turnout like the president said -- this is a reason why he wins. he was playing the analyst and acts like he doesn't do it publically. >> the best visual we've seen about the changing face of american politics -- the percentage of the vote white voters make up. it is down 3-4 points each election adn this will continue a long time. it was a reality they could blow off but they can't win without improving those numbers. >> you saw rubio try to do that -- >> and -- it was such a moment. really. and if we see, if republicans are serious about that, they will get serious about immigration reform. >> i will make a prediction if romney doesn't win. this is the last time we see a major party ticket with two white men on it. it will be almost automatic you have

[ cheers and applause ] >> bill: a great moment there. the president saying last night listen i have not maybe been the perfect president. he always says that, but i was listening to what you wanted me to do and i tried to do my best. >> obama: whether i earned our vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you and you've made me a better president. >> bill: and just jump in here to
to happen. >> that's plan c. wisconsin and iowa, colorado, new hampshire and nevada were plan b. >> one of them is gone. let's talk about florida. because you guys have been numbers crunching like crazy. it's interesting to comparing them to what they were four years ago. what is your sense, karl? identified that miami-dade and broward counties and palm beach the democratic strongholds in the south. obamis doing better in those. he is doing a little less than big urban centers of the i4 corridor. tampa saint peter and orlando and less well in the urban counties in the i4 corridors and worse in the southwest corner of the state and up in the north. the real one is the panhandle where he is running further behind where he did four years ago. walton county got 26% of the vote. now 23.7% of the vote. romney is getting 3 1/2 points better than -- but this race right now is settled. million people having voted is 2000 votes apart. i think at the end of the day it's about-- >> let me bring in-- >> this has been going back and forth. the interesting thing is in the counties where obama is doing
battleground states pretty much in the bag. they think nevada, wisconsin, iowa, and new hampshire are all pretty much in the president's column. they feel like ohio is almost certain to go for them. and that, obviously, would give them more than 270 electoral votes there. they think they are a little ahead in virginia. i feel pretty confident about virginia, they think colorado and florida are -- they think colorado and florida are pure toss-ups right now. they could win those, they might lose them and as i said, north carolina's the only one of the nine battleground states where they are pessimistic, but the rest they feel good about. and when you think about that altogether, that's why they feel really self-assured they're going to win the electoral college tonight if not the popular vote. >> can you imagine? to finish out the two tiny villages in new hampshire, 23 votes for president obama, nine for romney, and tonight, the polls begin closing in eastern in kentucky at 6:00 eastern time. our first big clue on how the election might unfold will come at 7:00 when the polls close in anoth
and mountain states of wisconsin, colorado, and iowa. that left nevada and the three critical states we've been watching for months now. we're talking about ohio, virginia, and florida. as it turns out, the president only needed one of those states. as soon as nbc news projected ohio for obama around 11:15, the president had enough electoral votes to keep him in the white house. as icing on the cake, though, the president did also pick up virginia, and he also picked up nevada early this morning. >> after a hard fought presidential race, mitt romney called president obama around 12:30 this morning to concede victory. about a half hour later with his family behind him and thousands of supporters before him, romney publicly congratulated the president on his re-election. he called on elected leaders to find common ground on areas where congress has disagreed, like the growing deficit and many looi looming budget cuts. romney urged his supporters to look ahead and urge solutions for the next four years. >> the nation as we know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bi
seats in play, and when we get out west, california, washington, nevada, something good could happen for them. but it's going to be hard for the democrats to take over the house. >> brown: there a particular one or two you want to keep your eye on especially tonight? >> a lot of the demographic data we're looking at democrats have area where's they can gain, perhaps later on down the line, arizona, texas, as sturks mentioned, florida is another one, where the democrats are look at making long-lasting gains. they're making new seats. california is another one we will be watching. what is the bigger picture when it comes to the type of members of congress? are these people extreme on one part or the other? the way the lines are drawn that can happen. if you draw a district with extreme democrat or republican, you can end up with extremes in congress. >> woodruff: mark, you were telling me you were off the set talking to somebody, picking up some information about how the vote is coming in. >> the turnout right now is that what tino voters are voting at the levels that the obama people
, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. the white house says the president will be briefed on details of the federal response to sandy, a day after he witnessed the devastation and promised to cut through all the red tape. mitt romney makes several campaign stops today in the swing state of virginia. >>> and there is more evidence at just how close this presidential race really is. a "wall street journal"/nbc news/marist poll of three bat e battleground state shows president obama with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a two-point lead in new hampshire. just five days left. >> it is so interesting to watch this as we get to that deadline. it's so fascinating. john, thank you very much. >>> back to our "starting point" this morning, it's day three of that fallout from superstorm sandy. millions of people without power in their homes. and as john mentioned, they're literally trying to pick up the pieces that remain from their homes, the pieces of their lives. yesterday the president and governor chris christie of new jersey toured the destruction on the j
ago including iowa and nevada and of course we are keeping a close eye on the other crucial battleground states including florida, ohio and virginia closing right now, iowa, montana, utah and idaho. both presidential candidates settled in to watch the results as they come in tonight. president barack obama has been in chicago all day. mitt romney want to boston this morning to cast his vote before flying out for more campaigning. we have team coverage on the two candidates. we go to the president supporters in chicago. we begin though, with rita williams with romney supporters in boston. [cheers and applause] >> well, mitt romney senior strategist took to the stage to ref up the crowd. no real news but you can see the crowd here is beginning to grow. meanwhile, i am told that mitt romney is across the street in a hotel room with his wife, ann, his five sons, 16 of his 18 grandchildren. but right before he went in there he had one last thing to say about this long campaign. >> i am very pleased. i feel like we put it all on the field. left nothing in the locker room. we foug
taking a few days off because of hurricane sandy. the president will be in nevada, colorado and in wisconsin. mitt romney is going to be visiting virginia. romney made three stops in florida yesterday and he focused much of his attention on the victims affected by hurricane sandy. and he is targeting young voters in the state. both candidates plan to hit all the key swing states leading up to next tuesday's election. >>> the question is will the damage caused by sandy impact voting for the presidential election. some analysts say yes especially with such widespread power outages in the northeast. fox's mike flannery spoke way apolitical science professor about what could be done. >> reporter: modern democracy uses machines that require electricity to record individual votes and then high- speed computer internet connections to transmit total counts to central election officials. but there may not be electricity even in parts of new york city for next tuesday's scheduled election. rural areas could face even longer delays on power. election officials across the northeast are
's reliance on gambling and wall be the overall balance. because if you go to nevada right now, it's clear in times of economic downturn that might be a weak foundation to build the state's revenue structure. we might be in the process of raising fundamental questions about where the state will go in the long run in terms of its budget. >> there will be more conversation throughout this show. on the other side of the casino issue from those who don't want this to happen. that's it for us. derek and anita, we'll perk up the coffee pot and hope for more results soon. send it back to you. >> all right, we are going to take a live look here at the podium at tim kane election headquarters, where the man who will be tim kane's fellow senator from virginia, senator warner is introducing. he's probably celebrating just a bit. in a few minutes, we're going to hope it happens in a couple of seconds, tim kane, the victorious senator from virginia will come to the podium for his victory speech. we already heard from george allen, a concession speech. very gracious saying, hey, our ideas must county. i
